SEWN Christchurch Newsletter: June 2017

Wednesday, May 31, 2017   Posted in: Newsletters By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, Community Groups

Welcome to the June / Pipiri 2017 Social Equity and Wellbeing Network (SEWN) newsletter.

Kia ora koutou

We were shocked and saddened today to hear that the Migrant Centre is closing down, due to a lack of sustainable funding. A major factor in this is the changes to how government is contracting the services that the centre has been delivering to migrants for many years.

It’s no secret that managing a large number of smaller contracts for services is consid-ered less efficient than having a smaller number of large contracts. This raises the question of how well large national contracts can deliver services that fully meet the unique characteristics of local communities.

Our good wishes go to everyone associated with the Migrant Centre. We truly hope that news like this will not be a regular event.
